This fabulous farm, set in the heart of Exmoor National Park is run by accomplished show jump rider, Lucie Allison and her golf professional husband Ian (ably assisted by junior jumper, daughter Georgina).
Lucie is the ultimate host.
The farm offers livery for riders who wish to bring their own horses and special en-suite accommodation for those who wish to bring their dogs.
That's what Exmoor is all about:- horses, dogs, wild game and wildlife in particular!
It is a paradise for animal lovers like ourselves. We took our two dogs and they were in heaven for awhile.
A typically and traditionally English part of the country, Exmoor epitomizes an ancient English county; customs and pastimes are those passed down from thousands of years. Do not expect anything less!
The breakfasts are enormously satisfying and home cooked: fresh, free-range fare from the farm!
The only problem you are likely to experience is one of trying to choose from an unbelievable range of activities in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
Most of the trains are steam driven!!
Expect to stay for a couple of days and you may well be there for weeks.
Believe me, I don't do this sort of thing very often, but Waneroo Farm is worth it! Here's the link:-
Yours Most sincerely
Jim and Helen Tait & their two staffy dogs, Sam & Simmy
